I think the Fourth of July is like the Thanksgiving of summer. Or is that just me?

I stay away from fancy food recipes on the Fourth, opting to prepare simple, family favorite foods. It’s most likely because I don’t want to spend all day in a hot kitchen. It’s more fun to grab a cool drink & join the party. You agree, right?!

If you need a few simple recipes for your upcoming holiday meal, you’ve come to the right place. The Fourth of July Recipe Round-Up includes sides, main dish, dessert and drink recipes that will have you in and out of the kitchen in no time. Most dishes can be made ahead of the big day, freeing up more time to celebrate.

I love having a themed dessert for holiday gatherings because it lends a festive air to the party. I use these easy Memorial Day desserts for patriotic parties.

Have a safe & wonderful Fourth!
